If people want to volunteer, government should make it easy for them to do so. Not put up nonsensical barriers. W are not all intent on harming others. Most of us just want to help
The CRB check regime seems specially designed to stop people getting involved in helping others. I visit patients in hospital who have had heart attacks. As a fellow sufferer I can help to reassure them that there is life after heart attack and help their rehabilitation. I had to have a CRB check so that I could visit adults in hospital. What a nonsense as many people visit friends and relations in hospital and have access to other patients without going through this costly pantomime. Scrap it!
